Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins



Chocolate and Peanut Butter is obviously a classic combination.  Usually you see it in desserts, but why not have it for breakfast?  I saw this recipe over at The Kitchenarian for her Muffin Monday series.  I knew I had to make them.  Muffins are always a hit here, chocolate and peanut butter is always a hit here, so I knew these muffins would be great.  And they were! 

Sorry for the lack of chit chat today.  I have a bad cold.  As luck would have it my 6 year old left today to spend 4 days with his Grandparents.  I had big plans for stuff to get done around the house, but so far nothing.  No energy.  Hoping this cold goes away FAST!!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins
Adapted slightly from The Kitchenarian
Printable Recipe

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups  flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare muffin tins, makes approx 18 muffins.

In a large bowl whisk together the melted butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

In another large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the peanut butter chips. Fold the egg mixture into the flour. Do not over mix the batter or you will have tough muffins.

Fill the muffin cups. Bake about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pan.

That dark chocolaty color is simply so attractive and with the scattered nuts around, makes it even more great.

I just saw peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips so it's only fair that a recipe with chocolate as the star gets its moment in the spotlight! These do look fantastic and I think they'd be Dudette's choice, being the chocoholic and all. Wow, they look moist.

I was also going to say that I hope you feel better soon, but I'm 50 and things fall out of my brain quickly these days. I do hope that the cold is short-lived and you're back to your perky self soon! I wish you some chicken soup!
